When you think of gravy on Thanksgiving what comes to mind? A boxed gravy that tastes so processed you don’t know what’s in it? Or perhaps it’s standing over the stove whisking like mad, wondering why your gravy isn’t thickening up, add more corn starch and bam you have a brick of crud lying in your pan wondering where your gravy went? Well, fear no more my Yummies’ I have a fool-proof recipe for gravy that is sure to appeal to everyone. It’s simple and you can use it for any type of meal.



Bob’s Red Mill GF All Purpose Flour

Chicken, Beef or Turkey Stock

Salt/Pepper to taste

As you can see I have not added quantity because this all depends on how much gravy you want to make. So I’m going to give you my measurements to feed a family of 4.

4TBS Butter

3TBS Flour

4 Cups Stock

Salt and pepper to taste


In a pan melt butter completely, add flour and whisk on medium heat. Add stock and whisk for 2 minutes, bring to a boil, turn to a simmer and let go for another 3 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for about 5 more minutes stirring occasionally. If your gravy is too thick, add more liquid, if it’s too thin let it simmer a bit longer 🙂

(Note: for a smooth gravy, it is important to melt the butter completely and whisk flour! Nobody likes a lumpy gravy that’s supposed to be smooth) 🙂
